I'm trying to back up a remote server with RSync script:
However, when I run the script I get the following error.
## my own rsync-based snapshot-style backup procedure
# config vars
SRC="firstname.lastname@example.org:~/public_html/" #dont forget trailing slash!
OPTS="-e ssh -rltgoi --delay-updates --delete --chmod=a-w"
# run this process with real low priority
ionice -c 3 -p $$
renice +12 -p $$
rsync $OPTS $SRC $SNAP/latest >> $SNAP/rsync.log
# check if enough has changed and if so
# make a hardlinked copy named as the date
COUNT=$( wc -l $SNAP/rsync.log|cut -d" " -f1 )
if [ $COUNT -gt $MINCHANGES ] ; then
if [ ! -e $SNAP/$DATETAG ] ; then
cp -al $SNAP/latest $SNAP/$DATETAG
mv $SNAP/rsync.log $SNAP/$DATETAG
When I checked the permissions on the directories the script created, they were automatically set so that no one could write to them, but instead only view them. How do I resolve this?
mv: cannot move `/media/Backups/UpSmart/rsync.log' to `/media/Backups/UpSmart/2012-09-17/rsync.log': Permission denied
